The GW men's basketball program and Department of Athletics and Recreation mourns the passing of Clint Holtz, who passed away on Friday, Jan. 17 at the age of 44.

Holtz, a lifelong native of Severna Park, Md., averaged 8.6 points on 51 percent shooting and 5.2 rebounds in 48 games at GW from 1988-90 before completing his collegiate career at Niagara University.  He was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Freshman Team in 1989 after averaging 11.4 points and 6.3 rebounds, including a 23-point, 10-rebound double-double in a victory over Massachusetts, the Colonials' lone victory that season.

After his collegiate career, Holtz spent a decade traversing the globe as a pro in Spain, Portugal, Germany, Finland, Israel, Brazil and Puerto Rico.  Following his playing career, Holtz followed his father's footsteps in law enforcement as a U.S. Capitol Police Officer.
